BARRIE CRAFT BEER & BBQ FESTIVAL

PORT MOODY RIBFEST

CORNWALL SUMMER BEER FEST
Jet Set Pub, NAV Centre, 1950 Montreal Rd. – Cornwall, ON

DURHAM CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL
Buster Rhino’s, 28 King St. E. – Oshawa, ON
BBQ restaurant Buster Rhino’s was one of the first establishments in Oshawa to offer a wide range of Ontario craft beers to their customers, so it’s fitting that it’s also the host location for the region’s only craft beer festival. For this third semi-annual edition, 13 breweries from throughout the province will be on hand, along with a few goodies from Buster’s own selection.
